Lockheed P-3 Orion (15-9887) - EP-3 night shot in the south Pacific, this is the follow-on shot to my previous photo.  Clouds had moved in.  30 second exposure.  Canon 10-22mm.  Looks sharper on Flickr.  Photo was approved via Navy channels, full photo credit:  LT Scott Shea, USN (me).  For ATC identification purposes, this is a P3, hence why it pops up as such.

Excellent LT, very well done! 5*++

It's an EP-3E ARIES II, not a P-3 ORION.

I have quite a few mission hours on board those aircraft.

Kind of hard to see, but the tail flash looks like it's a VQ-1 bird.

P.S. - Just checked the BUNO 159887 and it's VQ-1 EP-3E.

Robert, yes, but for ATC purposes, it's a P3. They do not demarcate or differentiate the different models. From what I can tell, ATC codes are used for aircraft Identifications on Flight Aware, so that is why I placed it as P3.
P.S. We may have flown together....

I'll take your word for it, Scott. As far as flying together, I was with NSGD Barbers Point from 1985-1989 (enlisted) and with NSGD Atsugi/NRSD Misawa (O-ganger) from 1991-1993.

Robert,

Sorry for the very delayed reply. I was VQ-1 from 2012-2015 and was the occasional user and abuse up until this past year. These days I jockey a desk and I count down the days until retirement!

Cheers!
